Russia does not rule out possibility of US rejoining Iran nuclear deal

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Moscow, Nov 13, IRNA -- Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Friday that Russia does not reject the possibility of US rejoining Iran nuclear deal, (JCPOA), after it pulled out from the accord two and a half years ago.

Zakharova made the remarks speaking to reporters during her weekly press conference when asked by IRNA reporter whether she thought the US would rejoin the 2015 multilateral accord.

Russia does not reject such a possibility as it did not in the past, the spokeswoman said.

She said that Moscow has repeatedly urged over the past two years the necessity of the US performance under JCPOA and UNSC Resolution 2231 and a subsequent lifting of sanctions against Iran.
